Tottenham Hotspur are keeping tabs on Manchester City defender Aymeric Laporte.
“Tottenham currently have a top-class center back in Cristian Romero,” the English media outlet ‘Football London’ reported on Tuesday (June 10). His partner needs to be at a similar level, so they are hoping to sign Laporte.”
Tottenham are expected to make a number of changes for the new season. For some time now, under a succession of defensive-minded managers, Tottenham’s main defensive tactic has been a three-back. This will now change to a back four. New manager Enze Postecoglou will need to find a solid two-center-back combination, with 4-3-3 being his plan A.
Tottenham’s backline is quite unsettled. They conceded 63 goals in the English Premier League in 2022-23, ranking sixth in the league for most goals conceded. Their poor defense made it difficult to secure wins and ultimately cost them a spot in Europe.
Outside of Romero, they have no reliable defenders. The defense needs to be completely overhauled. According to Football Transfer Tavern, Davinson Sanchez, Japhet Tanganga, Joe Roden, and Eric Dier are all potential departures. With so many defenders leaving, two center backs are expected to join.
Tottenham’s search for a solid starter has led them to Laporte. Laporte has been linked with a move away from title winners Manchester City after falling behind in the race for a starting spot. Laporte, who has played for City since January 2018, has largely been labeled a starter, but has spent more time on the bench this season. With just 12 league appearances, he is looking for a new challenge.안전놀이터
According to Football London, “Spurs are keen to take their center backs to a whole new level. Valued at £34 million, Laporte is a winner with a wealth of experience and has won many trophies with Manchester City.” “With the left-footed center-back next to Romero, the defense will not be as weak as it is now.”
He also mentioned the possibility of a full-time signing of Clément Langlais. “Langlais is an option to back up the first-choice center back,” the publication said. He can be bought for £10 million on loan this season.”
